Hello Shimmerz Family!
The holidays are upon us, and I'm so thankful for the great time we will have with our families. Today's layout features the amazing December Color Kitz paired with the Merry & Bright collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studios. You can purchase the Color Kitz here, and watch a process video of it on my channel.
Let's dive in!
I usually go for a white or light background, but since my pictures were on the darker side, I decided to use the wood grain patterned paper from the Merry & Bright Collection as my base. To this I sprayed Wild Spruce Chase and splattered Amaze-Mint, and set it aside to dry. I then began to work on the cutfile (included in the Color Kitz); I colored one piece with Black Cherry and the other with Blue Spruce. My idea was to layer these cutfiles off-set on top of each other. While these dried, I matted my photos on white cardstocked and added craft foam underneath them.
Once all my elements were dry, I started to stick everything down. I placed the cutfile right in the center of the base, layered my photos on top of it, and added in some embellishments from the Merry & Bright Cocoa Vanilla Studios collection. To finish off the layout, I added in some star wood veneers and Dotz, followed by splatters of I'm Not Limon and Amaze-Mint. Journaling was added in with gold ink.
That's it! Simple yet gorgeous, right?
